Monster(s) Day

Alright Mom...let's get it over with.....

Alright Mom…let’s get it over with…..

So Friday is cleaning day around here – you all know that by now……………but now we have an additional monster to put up with and that would be the evil Elf On The Shelf !!!    He’s free and he’s everywhere and he’s asking for trouble already!

This was him last year trying to steal my Mom's jewelry!

This was him last year trying to steal my Mom’s jewelry!

As you may remember, we received our Elf from my Cousin and buddy Bacon………..I’m not sure if I should be HAPPY about the gift or what.   The Elf On The Shelf is notorious at Bacon’s house for getting into trouble CONSTANTLY – the minute he’s allowed out of seclusion (day after Thanksgiving) until they cram him back into his box/bag/cabinet/safe deposit box – WHATEVER – things are chaotic at Bacon’s house.   I named my elf “Elfvis”……….clever huh?   Last year he managed to get into quite a bit of trouble and we’re heading down that road this year too.

Today I caught him in the water dispenser on the front of our refrigerator allegedly taking a shower.   He had a shower cap on and a towel wrapped around himself.  I tried to tell him that the water that comes out of that thing is COLD but he wouldn’t listen.


Then later I was walking through the library and I saw him whispering in the ear of our “Book Cat” statue…………..I had no idea what THAT was about until later………….


Apparently Elfvis had been asking Book Cat if he knew where he could find/steal a nail file.   Why?    Because he’d found the perfect Christmas tree and wanted to saw it down.   It was Mom’s Norfolk Island Pine Tree!   If I hadn’t put a stop to that little idea, Mom would have been VERY UPSET!


See what I mean?  When you have an elf in the house you need to stay on your toes (and since I have extra toes I’m having extra work staying ON them!).

Happy Friday – and to those of you with an Elf On The Shelf…………..KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN!

I've asked THIS GUY to help me keep an eye on Elfvis!

  1. Oh, my, Sammy — looks like you’ve got your paws full with that little guy! Good thing you’re keeping an eye on things around your house. Good luck!
    Love, Sundae


    • He tries but Mom knows that I’m just a perfect little gentleman (haha) so if anything goes awry around here – she blames Elfvis (and I nod my approval!).

      Love, Sam
      p.s. how was your blood work????


  2. Shakes and lower piggy head. I’m so sorry cousin. I thought at least ONE of Don Juan’s cousins would be good.. I was wrong 🙂 Good luck with that guy – just don’t give him phone access to call Don Juan here – that would be awful! XOXO – Bacon


  3. Elfvis is a lot of trouble- you should have let him take a cold shower 🙂 I am glad you saved your Mom’s tree. An elf showed up here briefly last year, but we buried him in the litter box. Hope your Mom vacuums quickly and then sit down to rest so you can nap. XO

    • Good idea on the litter box burial…..I’ll have to remember that…….Mom and Dad are finished with the housecleaning AND the yardwork! Now it’s MY time…….Nap Lap – here I come!!

      Love, Sam


    • HA! Don’t think we haven’t thought of burying him in the litter box, or even the TRASH CAN…….he’s truly a bundle of trouble even if he looks innocent enough! He’s definitely been “the gift that keeps on giving” even if the giving is dangerous!

      Hugs, Sammy


  4. I love that shower cap… and now I know that this guy is related with my momma… she wore such a shower cap too what was a popcorn bucket once… and the best was that she nearly had to wear that shower cap furever … fortunately her grampy was brave enough to remove it with a carpet knife :o)


    • OH NO!!!!! You’ve GOT to tell that story in your blog some time Easy. We know a lot of your Mom’s DISASTERS already but a popcorn bucket on her head….well….that might be in the TOP TEN!!!!!!

      Love, Sammy

  6. Sammy, Elfvis is the embodiment of the true HOOLIGAN. It’s going to be a rough holiday with him already getting into so much trouble. Better sleep with one eye open. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  8. Those little elves sure can get into some big mischief. all the little grandsbipeds have those Elf on the Shelf gremlins at their house. Mom saw two of them today and they were eating marshmallows!!! They even had the graham crackers out. We think they wanted to make s’mores but couldn’t find any chocolate.

    Happy weekend.
